Avoid The Heat :
Constantly striking your ends with a iron can thin, weaken and cause breakage. Using heat frequently can harm the hair or even break the cuticle. Therefore, if you have to use heat, keep it at a low temperature.
Make sure to also use a heat protector sprays before using heated tools. Also try and avoid using the nozzles that come with hairdryers as they direct the heat onto one specific area which augments the damage.
Blow dry your hair with the cool setting, for too much heat can damage your hair shafts. Wet hair retains water under the cuticles so, when you blow dry your hair with hot air, the water forms bubbles and stresses or even breaks the hair shaft. It also may lead to damaged and dull split ends. The more often you blow dry the greater chance your hair will be subjected to more damage. Reduce the risk by blow-drying only when necessary. When you do blow dry your hair, dry it first using a cotton t-shirt and then use low heat or cool air.
Turn off the dryer the moment your hair is dry. Try to let your hair dry naturally rather than using a blow dryer or you can make use of serums or creams before blow drying as it can shield your hair from heat.
